    JLK has just posted their new 210 Long Boat Tail bullet with a projected BC of .680. I have shot the JLKs for years and they shoot extremely good.

    I have never shot these bullets but you said you have for years. Do you use them for hunting?

    Sharing the e-mail response I got from Swampy ...

    Swampy,

    Your bullets have very impressive BCs. I know they
    perform very well on long range competition matches
    but I am a hunter and new in reloading. My question
    then is "how does your bullet perform (specifically
    the .308-210-LBT) in various hunting situations, esp
    on big game ?". I apologize if this has been
    addressed before.

    Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

    Ed,

    Even though we have finer profiles, thus higher BC, our
    bullets are made virtually the same way and with the same materials
    as Berger. Anything Berger relates about their bullets re hunting
    applications will also apply to ours. We sell quite a few bullets
    to hunters..... Sorry, but I have no direct recollections of any
    customers talking in particular about the 30-210LBT.

    best regards,
    Swampy

    Hay thanks I took the liberty of e-mailing SWAMPY right after I read this post and he told me the same thing. Needless to say I am stocking up!

    Can anyone contest to how the posted 210 / .308 .680 BC matches up with an exbal program?

    If they indeed have this BC I would surely give them a try.

    Thanks!
